Sure, Comic Con in San Diego is sold out. But you can feel like you’re there if you catch all the coverage available! Here are some of your choices:
MTV.com has joined with MySpace to provide web viewers with what they call “the most immediate and interactive access” to Comic Con and all the activities to be found there. MTV.com says, “the shows will stream simultaneously on MySpace and MTV.com, and viewers can take part in the conversations firsthand and in real time by posting comments and questions for the chance to have their favorite celebrities answer live.”
And, if you’ve got the cable channel G4, they’ve got a whole line up of coverage for the people at home. "Attack of the Show" hosts Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn will be delivering four hours of live, funny coverage from the convention floor on Saturday, July 24.
“On the web, G4 is offering comprehensive coverage at, where it will feature web-exclusive video interviews, the latest movie and TV trailers in HD, photo galleries and cosplay coverage from the show, live-blog from all the biggest panels including both the Attack of the Show and X-Play panels, game previews and coverage and all the latest news. Comic-Con content will also be available as a Podcast on the ‘Attack of the Show’ feed and on the new G4 iPhone app at http://g4tv.com/app.”
If you want a different angle, Screen Rant.com is covering the whole thing too. And you can always search Twitter for the realtime updates and posted photos in real time of cosplayers and costumed heroes. There will be a lot going on all over Comic Con, so you may see even more than people who are physically in attendance!
